Today starts a four-day weekend at the college. My daughter says on her entire dorm floor there are only two boys and five girls who are not leaving. She and her roommate are desperately trying to figure out what to do for four days. The campus seems like a ghost town.

I did some Google searching and found a whole bunch of activities for them this weekend. And sent her a great big long email. It might be kind of neat a near opportunity, because now they can be part of the whole community instead of just the college community. I found a breast Cancer walk, a 5K to support a homeless shelter, The local high school is putting on a fun play, I found yoga in the park, and some other really fun activities for the girls.

 That sounds like fun and yes she and her room mates should try to go out and have fun during this time. Tell her to find a place to take a hike and take pictures and make a nice project out of it. I know some will catch up on class work or just relax and read but taking those books to the park would be great with a lunch (or snack).

Wow, I hope they take some of your ideas and do something. It would be great for them to get out and about.
